Introducing the OMNIA™ series, the most recent flagship offering from the Denmark-based brand, ReSound. Initially unveiled in August 2022 and subsequently expanded in February 2023, the OMNIA family encompasses a broad spectrum of hearing aid styles. The series includes four types of Receiver-In-Ear (RIE) models, two variations of Behind-the-Ear (BTE) models, and a trio of custom in-ear models, namely Completely-in-Canal (CIC), rechargeable In-the-Canal (ITC), and both half-shell and full-shell In-the-Ear (ITE) devices.
Specially engineered to enhance auditory experiences in noisy settings, the OMNIA devices come equipped with advanced directional microphones. This feature is particularly prominent in the RIEs and BTEs, which are the most commonly used styles. In addition, RIEs come with an exclusive option of ReSound’s innovative M&RIE speaker. This integrates a third microphone inside the ear canal, enabling a more organic sound capture.
With the exception of the CIC model, all OMNIA devices are compatible with the ReSound Smart3D App and support direct Bluetooth streaming of phone calls and other audio, even facilitating hands-free calling for compatible Apple iOS devices. These models are offered in three distinct technology tiers (9, 7, and 5), and either come with rechargeable batteries or the option to upgrade to them. Furthermore, they possess an IP68 rating, the highest attainable grade for protection against water, dust, and dirt.
Aesthetically, the OMNIA series retains much of the styling from the predecessor ReSound One products. However, they also integrate a state-of-the-art chipset platform that significantly improves audio streaming capabilities and auditory experience in noisy surroundings. Despite the recent June 2022 launch of the Customs by ReSound line, which utilizes the ReSound One chipset, the company promptly followed up with the new OMNIA CIC, ITC, and ITE models.
The OMNIA series is purpose-built for superior performance in noisy environments. ReSound asserts that, like its competitor Phonak Lumity, OMNIA is designed to facilitate enhanced speech comprehension in settings with high ambient noise. In a bold statement, ReSound claims an astounding “150% improvement in speech comprehension” when compared to their previous generation of hearing aids.
